Searching for relatives

Jay G Burrup visits Suckley and Alfrick
From the left, Marnie Caine and Ivor Bramich (both from Suckley), with Jay G Burrup and his cousin from Worcester visit Mr. Biggs of Nightingales Bower, Alfrick on 15th June 1999. American archivist Jay G Burrup visited Suckley and Alfrick to search for information about ancestors of his relatives and friends who left this area in the 19th century for the USA after being converted to the Mormon faith.

Memories of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and its connection with Suckley and Alfrick at some time between 100 and 200 years ago seems to have been forgotten (or maybe suppressed) by people here.

A relative of Mr. Burrup was probably baptised in the pool at The Bower shown in the photo below!
